Webinars with the U.S. Census Bureau

Join Girl Scouts of Colorado staff and a representative from the U.S. Census Bureau – Denver Region to learn all about the 2020 Census and its impact. Learn about the history of the Census, how this year’s Census is different, current response rate in Colorado, and more! We will also review the “Stand and Be Counted” patch program and will have time for an open Q&A.

Both webinars are open to anyone who is interested. Thursday, April 9, 2020 will be designed for K – fifth grade. Tuesday, April 14 will be designed for sixth – eighth  grade. Capacity is limited for each webinar. If capacity is met, we will schedule additional webinars.

We will use Zoom to host this webinar. All information on how to join online or via phone will be emailed to registrants the day before the webinar.

GSCO’s NEW “Stand and Be Counted” patch

Girl Scouts of Colorado is thrilled to launch our “Stand and Be Counted” patch in honor of the 2020 Census!

** Please note: The GSCO Stand and Be Counted patches are not yet available in the GSCO Shop. We will make an announcement when patches are available. You can also email retail@gscolorado.org to be added to the patch interest list. We will email the list directly when patches are available for purchase. **

Did you know that every ten years, the United States Census Bureau makes an effort to count every person living in the United States? This is called a census, and the very first U.S. Census was conducted in 1790– 229 years ago! Earn this patch to discover why we count everyone, what happens afterward, and how you can become involved.
